Music4Meka .

Half hr was great yesterday. I sat at the bar in Downtown Mobile Alabama and this young man named Bernard was so nice and kept checking on me like every 8 minutes. This was a great birthday weekend starter. Thanks Wintzell's from now I'm eating at the bar this was the first of many visits for me.

Kiki Nguyen

This is a great place to stop by whenever Im in Mobile. The oysters were fresh and sweet.

Mari Menard

Good fish options and friendly staff.

Matt Evans

The pulled pork nachos we're amazing! Although super busy and in an even busier section; I would highly recommend Wintzell's Oyster House. In addition to outstanding grub, the beer menu is equally astounding! A great place to stop!


Came in with the family and dogs this afternoon and had EXCELLENT service. Wish I remembered our server's name because she a great example for others to follow. The food may sound secondary, but it was quite exceptional. Enjoyed a few dozen oysters and couple pounds of shrimp. Would definitely stop by again next time I'm in town.

doc lamb

The original wintzells is the best oyster and seafood i have had in awhile.friendly staff also.

Tamika Perkins

Love eating here. The service is always top notch and the food is amazing! Tonight I am having the fried green tomatoes, a bowl of gumbo, and the oven grilled platter with fried okra and collard greens. Can't go wrong with any of these!Back in Mobile again for another round. Could not decide on the type of oysters I wanted so I had the sampler and was not disappointed. My server, Heather, was outstanding and really added to my dining experience. Highly recommend requesting to be seated in her section. 5/5/19: First day back in Mobile after a long spell away. Of course my first stop after checking in is Wintzell's. The raw oysters, gumbo, and fried green tomatoes never disappoint. Finished with bread pudding. I asked for a la mode and was presented with the option of having it "loaded". This was amazing!!! Their famous bread pudding with candied pecans, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and vanilla ice cream. Soooo decadent, and oh so good. I will be back again, at least once more, before I leave next weekend

Bobby McNab

Great food and service, portions are more than expected and great value.

Linda Adkins

Food was perfect to my taste, place was clean, server was friendly and the waiting time was just right.

regina wilson

You dont get enough for the price you pay! But the food is good.

Amanda Woo

Those raw oysters are so delicious! I'm from AZ and the oysters there are more pricey, but here it is a few dollars cheaper. I also tried their gumbo and had to get two cups because it was so good. Not too spicy and it was a hearty meal. Glad I got to try out wintzell's.

trinitius pickett

The order was totally wrong. Good thing we checked the bag before leaving. However the waitress made it right. No one at the register to assist us for a long time

Lucho Jacome

Great atmosphere with awesome food and a friendly staff

William Butler


Dustin Beckwith

Excellent food and drink, would recommend!

Scott Nina

The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because the place is a little dated and Warren and the seating is compact. Other than that we had a great experience food was delicious and service was awesome. We had oysters Monterey, a fried oyster po boy with french fries, gumbo and bisque and Blue Moon beer. The crab bisque was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant for good tasting food and fast friendly service. There is a full bar and also and Oyster Bar. Check out the photos!

Susan Barnes

It's an unusual placr but thr food is awesome. If you decide to select this place while in Mobile, AL,; oysters are the best. Nestled among downtown and residential areas, the decor will hold your attention until food arrives Will drive an hour just to eat there.

Perry Smith

Very fresh seafood in a family friendly environment with good service and reasonable prices. Within walking distance to the Holiday Inn.

Misty Romo

The Fried Scallops were amazing and the Oysters were amazing.

Laveta Henrickson

The food and the service was great and I loved it

Kevin Douglass

Awesome atmosphere, great selection of oyster dishes, including raw on the half shell. This place offers a wonderful food experience.

Willie Smith

If you love Seafood this is the place to go

Ray Johnson

I love raw oysters and they have the freshest

Kat Mize

So good! This is a must go to place and eat.

Vin Elson

Wintzell's on Dauphin Street is amazing. It has a very unique, local, comfortable atmosphere inside. The raw oysters are delicious, but you can get oysters so many ways you'll want to try the sampler. The crawfish sauce is a nice topping for fried green tomatoes. You also can't wrong with either the Cream of Crab soup or the Jerk Chicken Chili. Your only problem will be deciding what to have! If you want a real taste of Mobile, stop here.

Brenda Pardee

Ecletic, full of interesting history, and our our oyster shucker was friendly but the bar was pretty messy and obviously had been leaned on for many years. The oyster juices kept dripping into my lap. We also had to share one roll of paper towels with the rest of the customers sitting at the bar.

Clinton Hernandez

In town for a wedding and this was my 1st spot. Love the West Indies salad and baked oysters! Perfect lunch and always enjoy reading the sayings on the walls. Fun place with great food. Fresh oysters and great food. We enjoyed the oysters, crab cakes, and key lime pie. Ate here our first night in town and returned two nights later we enjoyed it so much

Enid Marrero-Hinchey

Seafood seemed fresh and plump but i chose badly in eating fried platter, breading was thin but for some reason gave you a heavy feeling of "greasy" spoon food. Just don't do the fried if you really have a craving for seafood. My hubby said cheese grits had sat out too long and were a bit bland. No wow moments. Baked potato had a good amount of condiments. Atmosphere was pleasant and service was ok.

Bill Daniels

Great oysters... Try the sampler!

April Sprayberry

Was a good place. I'm not a seafood person, so I didn't have much to choose from. What I ordered tasted good. It's so busy that the wait for seating and food was a little long.

Michael Garner

Nice place for a luncheon front xferring shipmate.

B.C. Smith

I enjoyed my visit, and will be back. Thre shrimp and oysters were really good. The oysters surprised me because I typically do not like them. The service was good and fast.

Erica Muir Stephens

Really good food. Our service was excellent.

Katrina West

Very good seafood and the oyster is excellent! Great service

Karol Gawrych

Wintzell’s is a staple of downtown Mobile, AL. You must stop in here for their oysters. Try to get here for the happy hour oyster special. We are from New York and have traveled quite extensively and these oysters are top notch!! Their friendly service was also a highlight. Our waiter Dante was pleasant and provided us with everything we needed. We’ll definitely return and recommend this to close friends and family.

Rosetta Robinson

The food was great. Terrah our server was awesome. Good service. I ordered catfish and loved it. The peach cobbler was very tasty and warm. If you want good food and reasonable prices eat here.

Bryan Bair

Red fish was really good and the waitress was excellent!

Jennifer Wilson

Oysters sampler platter was awesome. Great atmosphere.

Toni Holt

I have been going here for years and have never been disappointed in the quality or taste in any of the dishes. The shrimp gumbo, jerk chicken gumbo, seafood platters and oysters on the half shell are the most delicious and the freshest you will ever taste!

Mary Moore Smail

I was very dissatisfied with the restaurant. The place was dirty, the menus were sticky and the bathrooms were gross. I can only imagine what the back of the house looked like. I really had higher expectations of seafood in the South. The price was too high for the quality of the food. They need to clean and regroup!

Dustin James

Wow, best bacon wrapped shrimp, fried shrimp and fried oysters ever! Highly recommended service was gracious. Cheese grits were tasty.

Jackie Simms

The food is delicious! Try the oyster sampler.

Rex Barrow

I am a big boy and I was stuffed with the best seafood in a while. Go to this place, you will love it.

Chevalier Stones

A group of us went for lunch while in Mobile for business. It is the first time I have been to this place. Others in my group said that it was a must for them. The best thing about the experience was our waitress. She was everything you wanted in a server. Very knowledgeable on the food and drink. She was able to make suggestions without hesitation. She was able to describe the dishes for us. She was fast and very friendly. She was very attentive. The food was great. There very no complaint at the table and there were a lot of sampling of each others dishes. The price was fair and the food was plenty. Definitely would recommend this place and I will definitely be back.

Lynne Singleton

Great value for food! The happy hour oysters are a great value; we got a dozen for $8. The kids meals are also a decent size! We enjoyed it immensely, and feel like we got to experience an authentic Mobile restaurant.

Tee F Kay

I have been only one time in Mobile Alabama, actually for a weekend only. But I have been to Wintzell's Oyster House twice. First to a dinner with friends, where we all have been very impressed with the the choices we had made. I came back for lunch alone the other day and again had the bacon wrapped scallops - Yum-Yum! I certainly will come back whenever I am close.

Kyle Stone

Delicious food. We had all different kinds of shrimp and they were all really tasty. Super nice staff. Will definitely be back.

William Cook

Great food. Didn't know it was a chain, so that was a surprise for my party. Service was impeccable, even at the height of Mardi Gras, so I'll be back next year!

Danny Combs

If you love oysters then you should visit this place.

Karen Davidson

The food is delicious. Had my first Low Country Boil and enjoyed it very much.

Niki Nichols

Amazing service & the food was good! Attended a rehersal dinner & everything was super easy & fast!

Teila Boston

The food was good and the service was very good.

Nancy Crumpton

Good food. The shrimp were the best thing on the menu in my opinion.

Troy Wilson

Great oysters, service can be hit or miss but for the most part, a good place to eat at any of their locations.

City Watchdog

My experience started off very poorly. I went into the men’s room and it was filthy. The bathroom appears not to have been updated or cleaned since the restaurant opened. My wife and I ordered our meal and they brought out our tea first. The tea was nothing but water. After two rounds of trying to get this right we both ordered Diet Coke’s. The oysters on the half shell were we expected very good. My lump crab cake was slightly undercooked, but ok. I ordered the fish and shrimp the shrimp was excellent, however, the fish was undercooked but OK. I also ordered onion rings which came out cold but were OK and my french fries came on at the end of the meal and were well under cooked. My wife’s meal of oysters and shrimp was good. Unique dining experience lots of fun sayings on the wall, but I probably will not return. Anyone who runs a restaurant should know the bathroom tells a story and your story was not a good one today.

Jude Perry

I liked it and it was really good the fish was a little pink but other than that it was great!

Sandra Roma

It's a great place to eat. Food and the service were fantastic! You can sit and read all the signs decorating the walls while you wait for your food.

Martin Richer

Very good meal. Good service! Will go again!

Desiree Jacome

Everything was good except the pineapple upside down cake

Ken B

A little throwback to when things seemed better, and the food was excellent, Oysters were wonderful. The service was fantastic. Casual and pretty laid back

Adam High

Fried oysters and other famous staples at Wintzell's were fantastic, but I suggest avoiding anything outside of seafood. Wait on a busy weekend can be long, but the staff is very attentive and the atmosphere is nice. Highly recommend for someone traveling through Mobile wanting genuine Gulf seafood.

Chris Beverly

Always have been so very pleased and happy with the service and staff that ALWAYS take great care of me and my family. Best party and catering food in the city.....

Thomas Chatain

This place is amazing. The food is spectacular, the staff is delightful. We loved it. I had the oyster sampler and my wife had the shrimp sampler. Both terrific, as well as our Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer! Thank you!

Carolyn Witt

Excellent food! I enjoyed an oyster sampler which tasted wonderful. The atmosphere was good, I had great food and watched the college March madness games. The serving staff was attentive.

Michel Sukhakanya

Stopped by on a day trip to take my kids to the exploratorium. Amazing oyster sampler plate. Plus I added another dozen raw because they were half off at only $8. I will be back next time I'm in mobile. My girl got the red fish and loved it.

matthew c

I ordered the fried catfish and shrimp platter. The catfish with some of the best catfish I've had in a long time. I have had better shrimp, as the breading was falling off of it. The flavor was good though! The hushpuppies were good and the fries were good too. Their slaw was good but had a lot of watery dressing in it. I'd go back for sure! My waitress did a great job, and was checking on all her tables often.

Karen Pierce

Service was great! Oysters great!!!Had a great meal. Will be coming back.

Sandra Radford

The Charbroiled oysters are fantastic and the Weekender Bloody Mary is an meal by its self...

Bobby King

Great Seafood I recommend a crab claws and the oysters on the half shell

Paul V. Suppicich

80-year-old Wintzell’s is a Mobile landmark where we enjoyed a good meal. My daughter and I both ordered the Redfish Bienville which was good but a touch overcooked, dry. The salad that came before the dinner however was the showstopper being flavorful and delicious. Pair it all with a cold draft beer and it rounded out to a good dinner experience.

Chris Golden

I went with the Mobile Kennel Club Group after the dog show Friday night. From the waiter clear through dessert everything was fantastic!!! Their Balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing was nicely balanced unlike many places where I find it to be overpowering. I had the cream crab soup and everyone in the group that ordered it raved about the fabulous flavor.

Al Beesure

Mouth watering food, everything tasted great. If you haven't tried the grilled oysters you're missing out. I shall return !

Linda S. Hammons

Still best crab claws after coming here for over 50 years!

Alice Martin

We had the fried shrimp. The food was very good and the service was very warm and friendly. I would definitely go back!

Eddie Rogers

Excellent food if come away from here hungry its your fault we ate at the one in mobile on dauphin street excellent service

Joseph P. Rusnak

We love this place! Classic Mobile spot. Lots of character, really good seafood and always great service.

Sharriette Finley

This was the Wintzell's on Dauphin in Mobile. We waited more than 90 minutes to get food that only tasted reasonably good. The service was the pits. The atmosphere is one I don't want to experience again. The manager on duty the evening of Wednesday, March 13, 2019 was the worst. When we inquired about the serious delay in service, he asked, "What do you want me to do?" Wow!

Mike Nettles

Really fresh delicious and plenty seafood to fill a southern boy's appetite. Good atmosphere and good attentive service. Arnold said it best..."I'll be back!"

Tobey Nelson

The best fresh seafood! My favorite was the stuffed flounder with crab meat, shrimp & crawfish! So yummy

Amy Smith

Everything was very good and the service was quick and friendly. My friend ordered the fish tacos and said they were a bit on the spicy side but she still enjoyed them.... Just a warning for anyone that can't handle spice. Her husband ordered the seafood Alfredo and enjoyed it very much. My husband ordered a bowl of gumbo which he said was tasty and I ordered the crab bisque. It was all good. However, I was a bit surprised at the very small portion of soup in the bowl size. It was maybe 1/2" deep... MAYBE. I would hate to see how much is in the cup size. My husband and I had a late lunch that day so we were not starving which is why we only ordered a bowl of soup each. We were still hungry after eating and got to hunt down some dessert. I guess we won after all.

Marc Waddell

Pretty good place. Food was very good, service was OK. I would go back. My wife and I had the red fish and it was very good. I also had the grilled oysters which were also good, but could have used some bread to go with it. House chips were excellent. Rest of the sides were average.

Evil Eyez

Great spot! Me as well as my fellow Motorcycle Club enjoyed it our whole weekend there. We'll definitely back hopefully we can give advance notice so wait times won't be as long. Customer service was very good as well considering how packed it was. Located in walking distance from the 3 hotels we occupied. Eat, drink and get a little exercise after. No excuse for anyone to be in or on a vehicle.

Juliane Bottomley

Good selection of different seafood dishes. My husband had the traditional southern catfish dinner. Now I will say the catfish was cooked to perfection, however the sides such as the cheese grits were just ok. I had a low country boil that was truly lacking in flavor. I also thought it to be a little over priced for the portion size as well. I have had much better and much more for lower in price. Overall, not too bad...has a fun atmosphere!

Emily Clarrey

The food was amazing and you cant beat the experience!! We even asked our waitress if she would just get a order of 4 oysters because we had never tried fresh oysters and she gave them to us on the house! Very friendly! And Great food we will be back!

Russel early

The food was amazing,and so many famous people here

Conner Jung

The oyster platter was amazing. Let's you try a few various different kinds of oysters from the Rockefeller to ones covered in cheddar, bacon, and jalapenos. They have a good beer selection too. Overall a great place to go eat and hang out.

Bob Horkavy

The front of the house was excellent. In fact, our waiter was very apologetic that our food took almost an hour to get out of the kitchen. The restaurant was not busy, so why it took so long for our food to come out was most confusing. The shrimp was over cooked and the gumbo was barely warm. We had two small children with our party, so it was that much more inconvenient to wait. Wait staff was excellent. Food was marginal. Time for food to come out of kitchen was not acceptable at all. Here’s a teaching moment for was Friday August 16 between the hours of 6:30 pm and 8:30 pm. Look at your kitchen schedule to see who was on duty and talk with your kitchen staff because there is a lot of room for improvement.

Brian Buckelew

We frequently eat at Wintzells and i have never had service that wasnt top notch or food that is fresher. One of the Best places in Mobile to carry your family or your clients

Joseph Keith

I have always loved this place. I haven't been here in Mobile in over seven years and I recently returned on a trip stopping through here and my folks brought me here because they know I love seafood and I have to say it was delicious. There was even a mix up with two of our party members and the manager himself came by, I think his name was Dave, and he was very respectful and cleared it up for us. The staff was very accommodating and very friendly and the food was delicious. I highly recommend this place if you are ever downtown in Mobile and you are looking for a good bite to eat with a great atmosphere.

Dio Ortiz

Great Raw Bar with some Southern staples.

Aaron Rivera

Good southern food, and bartender Tuajuana (sorry for butchering the spelling) was exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Melanie Ferguson

Great food. Perfect fried shrimp/super coleslaw/hush puppies like Mom used to make. Reasonable prices. Service was tops at the drink bar, cool and not so noisy. Thank you. The ol man would b proud. Melanie Ferguson Grant St Mobile 36606

DJ RaptorXS

Delicious seafood in the heart of Mobile: We were able to have a private dining room and bathroom for our class reunion, and the service was spot-on. Great atmosphere!

Stuart Duffield

Good service and an awesome, attentive server makes the experience something memorable. The charbroiled oysters were freaking hot (heat, not spice) and so tasty. No pressure to eat quick and get out, a relaxed atmosphere and all the staff were friendly, fun and attentive.

Ryan Dukes

Great southern seafood spot! Highly recommend! Fresh fish and shellfish, great beer selection and location!

Bob Miller

My wife had the shrimp tacos and they were great, I had the crab cakes they had good flavor but more filler than crab. Our waiter was more interested in playing a game on his phone than helping us.

Barbara Sweatt

Loved it! Great seafood and awesome wait staff. We really enjoyed ourselves!

Bryan Farley

Great atmosphere and great food; Service was A#1

Michael Schubert

What's not to love about winters. It kind of encompasses everything that is mobile. Great seafood friendly down home atmosphere along with a bar and great southern charm.

Kenyon Johnson

Terrific can't wait to go back


Some of the best seafood around. I don't live in Mobile but I make it about once a year and make it a point to hit Wintzell's every time. I'm not an oyster person but I can attest to their fish and shrimp which is very good. I love the breading they use for their fried items and the whitefish they use is just mouthwatering. I usually forget how good it is with so long in between visits but it never disappoints. And make a note to get at least a cup of the gumbo. The best seafood gumbo I've ever had. If you love seafood, make sure to hit the original Wintzell's in downtown Mobile. You'll be sorry you hadn't been there before.

Danielle Logan

The BEST oyster bar ever! The guys behind the bar are so friendly and take care of customers so well!

Denise Hall

Bacon wraped shrimp and Monterey orsters all the way baby!!!!!

Andy Burk

I've never been a big fan of oysters. Never. My first trip to Wintzell's I got the Low Country Boil and man was it delish!!! Second trip, same thing. Third trip, I tried the chargrilled oysters and my mind was blown away!!! I couldn't believe what I had been missing out on this whole time!!! Ever since then, I've ordered them every time. The last two trips I ordered the fried oyster dinner and oh my stars, they are gloriously delicious!!! I've only had oysters one other time, and that was in Louisiana three years ago, but I can say without a doubt, the greatest place in the world to get oysters is Wintzell's!!! I don't think I could go anywhere else. It's about an eight hour drive for me to get there but I wouldn't have a problem making a trip there just for a plate of their chargrilled and or fried oysters!!! I can't wait to go again!!!

shane Lambert

Good oysters, great atmosphere, friendly staff, not a bad value too!

Julia Leigh

Best oysters in town. Try this place out. Much recommended.

Benjamin Bates

Wintzell's oysters and shrimp are the best in downtown Mobile. Always friendly service in a relaxed old-Mobile atmosphere. Lunch or dinner ... Always fun and delicious.

Lorenzo Winters

A group of us went for lunch while in Mobile for business. It is the first time I have been to this place. Others in my group said that it was a must for them. The best thing about the experience was our waitress. She was everything you wanted in a server. Very knowledgeable on the food and drink. She was able to make suggestions without hesitation. She was able to describe the dishes for us. She was fast and very friendly. She was very attentive. The food was great. There very no complaint at the table and there were a lot of sampling of each others dishes. The price was fair and the food was plenty. Definitely would recommend this place and I will definitely be back.

Calvin Franklin

The heavily seasoned Salmon and crawfish sauce didn't mix well.

Joshua Thurman

Go during happy hour. $8 a dozen raw. Three food here is always fresh and delicious

Vladimir Petrovic

Good food, nice place for quick bite

Elaine Moore

Very enjoyable experience.Good was great and the service was excellent

Gregory Collins

Wow. Incredibly good food at reasonable prices. The fried green tomatoes are amazing, as is the fried oyster garden salad (topped with sweet and spicy pecans). Oysters on the half shell were half-off for happy hour and were cold, clean, and fairly tasty. Service was also excellent.

Gean Johnson

Food was very good. Service wasn't very fast, but they were very busy. Our waiter was very personable and apologized for the not very fast service. We weren't in a big rush so it didn't matter, and the food was great!

Randy Bohn

Every time we get to town I try and make it here. Wintzell's is the best seafood in Mobile. Their servers are second to none and really make you feel welcome.


Their gumbo is the best I’ve ever tasted. Love their customer service and I the wait time is pretty standard. Food always tastes fresh and the waiter always makes sure your having a pleasant time. I come here not only for the food but for the great customer service they always display.

Brian Cobb

Great spot for locals and tourist. Amazing Southern Gulf cuisine and atmosphere. Every dish is great. I have never have had a bad experience here.

Mercedees Neville

Want to go back and if I'm ever close most definitely well 13hr drive it's worth it

Kathryn Perez

Historic original location downtown with quotes, sayings and joke statements covering every inch of all walls, offers the most delicious, mouth-watering baked oysters above any other restaurant anywhere! The catfish has amazing flavor and everything is incredibly fresh. The waitstaff are friendly, local and accommodating, making sure each patron is happy with their selections. The atmosphere is casual and fun. The seafood soup is creamy and filled with fresh seafood. The sweet tea us true to really sweet southern Alabama flair so I like mine half cut with unsweetened tea which makes it just right. Make sure to save room for the bread pudding which is absolutely delicious and totally addictive. My boyfriend doesn't even like bread pudding but once he tried a bite of it, I had to fight to eat any more! LOL. Wintzell's is our all time favorite place for oysters and bread pudding!

Elia Reyna

Fun and delicious. It was a lot of food. Great atmosphere.our server was awesome, fun and had details about the history on the walls.

MrMadProSquad Hill

Great atmosphere! Yummy oysters. Service was great too.

Joni Mazer

I visited Mobile, Alabama for a convention of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League and dined at Wintzell's oyster house with my friends. The food was delicious, service was great, and I loved reading all the signs and looking at the memorabilia covering the walls.

Gail Copeland

The food was great. Our sever was awesome and I enjoyed reading the fun quotes they have all over the walls.

Sheila Wilkerson

Friendly service, excellent food. I had tried green tomatoes. My friends had grilled oysters. The juice was delicious we stopped it up bread.

Kyle Jacobs

The food wasn't bad. It wasn't great, either. The wait was something like two hours from showing up to us getting our food.

Isaac Redding

I had oyster Bienville and west Indies salad. The oysters were great! The salad was a little dry but was still pretty good.

Phillip Anthony

Food was delicious, service was fantastic. Best happy hour around.

McElmurray Stephanie

Amazingingly cool place! Great staff!

Shoals Yakkin' with Hatch

Awesome food, awesome brews, bartender was excellent. Great atmosphere, helped make the best of the evening.

Katie Maxwell

This restaurant was so cute (loved all the sayings on the walls) and the food was delicious! I had the oyster sampler and it was so good! I am usually not a fan of oysters, but these were amazing! Definitely check this spot out!

Allen Few

If you want good quality seafood at a reasonable prices, this is the wrong place to come. Save your mo eat and don't waste your time. I grew up in Mobile and used to eat at Wintzells when Oliver Wintzell ran the restaurant. They always had fresh well prepared seafood at reasonable prices. This place is a joke now living off its name. The big bowl of gumbo I ordered had no seafood in it and was below average at best. The shrimp salad my wife ordered had tiny bay shrimp. We paid $85.00 for our meal and were sorely disappointed; we don’t live in Mobile now, but we will never go back to Wintzells when traveling. This place is now a tourist trap with substandard food and sky high prices and living off its name from many years ago.

David Reynolds

Love this place their food is always excellent I ate till I couldn't eat anymore!

T Armstrong

Loved it the food was great and well priced and proportioned. If your looking for good food at a great price in Mobile in a friendly atmosphere this is the place.

James Galyon

Great food. Quick ,delicious, and heaping portions. Cold beer a few whiskeys but attentive staff. Can't wait to go again

P Marilyn

The food was excellent and the service was superb!!!! Will be going back as soon as possible!!

Meckael Larkin

I really enjoyed myself, the atmosphere was wonderful. I've eaten at the other two restaurants in the Mobile area and they just don't compare. I LOVE the happy hour 7 days a week. The charbroil oysters are the best in the area always even to the other locations.


Wintzells has always been one of my favorite seafood restaurants in Mobile. All of the food is amazing and reasonably priced. The special is typically a nice surprise like snow crab or other seasonal specialties. The only real downside is the parking but that is to be expected for the location. Great place and a must visit for everyone travelling to Mobile.

stephen cameron

My wife and I came in for dinner here in Mobile, AL before we left for an anniversary cruise. We were seated with Ashlyn. Ashlyn is a tremendous representative for your establishment. She made us feel very welcome and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was great, but what brought us back was Ashlyn. We asked to be seated in her section and she immediately recognized us and asked how are cruise was! Do not lose this girl! She's the best! We will be back, 100% due to her!
